She has loved horror, fantasy and SF all her life, thanks to my father who raised her on 50s Sci-Fi Universal Monsters, tango and popcorn. Her love of the bizarre, (including her Dad) remains constant, to this day. She also owes a great debt to Rog Peyton from the BSFG who introduced her to alternative fiction at the tender the age of 14.
In 2013 Theresa ran the successful literature convention Andromeda One.
In 2017 she commences research into a three year study of #WomeninHorror literature. The site is under construction but goes live Feb 2017 and has an awesome logo designed by Great British Horror.
